News : Türkgücü 0-0 – meager yield – sport
Türkgücü also plays 0-0 in Lautern. Racism incident before the game
From Stefan Galler
The positive first: For exactly 500 minutes, third division promoted Türkgücü Munich has now been clean. Nevertheless, one should have hoped for more in the camp of the ambitious newcomer on Tuesday than the meager 0-0 at 1. FC Kaiserslautern.
The hosts got off to a better start, after a pass from Jean Zimmer, the former Unterhachinger Kenny Prince Redondo stood free in front of the Türkgücü goal, but shot just wide (5th). The battered lawn in the Fritz Walter Stadium made life difficult for the kickers. Nevertheless, the guests from Munich, where top striker Petar Sliskovic was surprisingly not in the squad, had a good chance after a quarter of an hour: A blocked free kick fell at Aaron Berzel’s feet, but his 20-meter hit FCK keeper Avdo Spahic shone fended off. Coach Alexander Schmidt owed his goalkeeper René Vollath to the fact that it was 0-0 at the break, who defended Zimmer with a brilliant foot reflex on a quick counterattack by Lauterer (32nd). Little exciting happened in the second section: A Türkgücü free kick by Sercan Sararer just missed the goal (65th), while on the other side, substitute Daniel Hanslik came a step too late against Vollath (79th). A good ten minutes later, Türkgücü’s third 0-0 win in a row was official.
Before the game, the openly racist party “Der III. Weg” hung a banner in front of the Fritz Walter statue on Betzenberg with the words “Türkgücü not welcome”. The FCK fans reacted with the clear statement: “Shut up when the west curve speaks! You don’t decide who is welcome here.” The club stood behind the supporters’ action via Twitter: “All said and done. Thanks to our fans.”
